Parenting on Purpose


A Daughter’s Perspective

posted by srballantine

As the daughter of a Law of Attraction life coach, (I am the middle child of three, currently 23 years old) I have been bountifully equipped with the proper tools to attract, create and maintain the life path that I want. For me, one of most prominent, or daily, elements of the Law of Attraction is positive thinking. Our thoughts are directly related to the things that we attract and create in our lives.

The act of intentional thinking, or positive thinking, was one of the first concepts my mom was determined to instill into our day-to-day lives. She taught us that everything we are thinking or talking about, we draw towards ourselves. With this being the case, the objective is to put energy, or thought, into things that we want to create. This requires an awareness, and regular attention to the constant stream of thoughts going on in our head.

What we also need to keep in mind is that it is nearly impossible to entirely screen all of our thoughts, but when we notice ourselves thinking about or focusing on a thought that doesn’t feel good, or one we wouldn’t want to be made larger in our lives, that we transfer this energy to a new thought which instead focuses on a positive desire or outlook.

Since it takes 17 seconds for the universe to respond to our thoughts with a matching one, there are ways of stopping undesired thoughts from being manifested even after we have thought them.

When I was younger, I created a trick that became known to us as, “thinking boom,” which my siblings and I used all the time and may be of help to your family. When you recognize a thought that didn’t come from a place of positivity, close your eyes and visualize that thought gently vaporizing. Or, you can also visualize a stop sign that is literally stopping you from continuing your thought process. If one of us said something out loud, or thought about an undesired negative idea we would close our eyes, visualize it vaporizing and yell, “think boom!” It became a fun family game, and made a difference over time. It taught us to be aware of how we were feeling and how to choose to get back to feeling good, which has greatly benefitted my siblings and I now that we’re grown, and out in the world creating our lives.

The more you practice this technique the more natural it becomes to be selective in your thinking. While at first you might find yourself “thinking boom” a multitude of times a day, you will eventually become more proficient at only focusing on ideas and things that make you feel good, inevitably needing this helpful tactic less and less. My brother and sister and I really appreciate that our mom has given us this awareness.
